Call of Duty: Mobile has finally got the Grind mode as part of its recent Season 13 update. If you’re looking to come out on top during this multiplayer mode, then you should keep a few useful tips in mind.
Grind was a unique game mode that was first introduced in Call of Duty: Ghosts. It was initially only available through custom games, but its popularity led to it eventually becoming a true multiplayer mode when Modern Warfare was released in 2019.
Now, Activision has brought it to CoD Mobile as part of the Season 13 update, and it involves you collecting tags dropped by every enemy upon death. Your goal will be to bring these tags back to your team’s objective marker on the map.
This isn’t going to be a cakewalk, so here are a few useful tips to keep in mind to dominate the Grind game mode in Call of Duty: Mobile.
Mind your positioning in CoD Mobile’s Grind
If you want to collect enemy tags, you will need to control the center of the map. This is because it will increase your chances of surviving the journey back to your team’s base since it’s less risky than running from further away.

Don’t focus on aggressively pushing your way through enemy ranks, as this mode isn’t ideal for that. You’ll find yourself in a world of hurt if you stick to this type of planning, so be careful as you make your way forward.
That said, you can still be aggressive in your efforts to keep the enemy team from banking. You can put aside the objective of collecting tags, and instead focus on taking out foes while you’re positioned close to their base.
Hopefully, you’ll have a teammate or two that will focus on picking up tags from the enemies you bring down. Your focus will be on slowing them down in their efforts to rack up points.
Less is more in CoD Mobile’s Grind
As we mentioned earlier, you shouldn’t focus on playing aggressively in Grind. While you might be tempted to gun-down foes left and right while collecting as many tags as you can, this isn’t guaranteed to work out well for you.
If the enemy can eliminate you near their base while you have a large collection of tags on you, then your efforts will go to waste. They’ll have no issue taking back what you stole from them and you’ll end up helping them.
For this reason, less is often more in this game mode. You should focus on collecting a few tags and then making several round trips to your objective marker.
Stick with SMGs
Your weapon loadout choice will determine your chances of success in Grind. If you’re up for rushing into close combat, then you can’t do better than SMGs. They offer better mobility and speed than Assault Rifles.
This makes them the ideal choice for this game mode. You’ll be spending the majority of your time running and gunning in this mode, so it makes sense to choose a weapon that you can fire from the hip. You can do well with the AGR 556 after equipping a few attachments.
While Assault Rifles often dominate battle royales, they don’t offer the assurance that SMGs do during hectic close-range combat situations. You can have the AR users in your team hang back and provide cover fire.
In the end, the class you pick will be the key to your imminent victory. Just keep these tips in mind and you’ll be able to annihilate your foes in CoD Mobile’s Grind mode.

How to play CoD: Mobile Zombies Undead Siege: Tips, tricks & event
Here’s everything you need to know about CoD: Mobile Zombies’ Undead Siege mode, including how to play it and some tips and tricks.
Call of Duty: Mobile Season 6’s new Zombies experience, Undead Siege, has arrived. Here’s how to play the new mode and some top tips on surviving until dawn.
Ever since the Zombies mode was removed from Call of Duty: Mobile, fans have been crying out for its return. After it was confirmed earlier in the year, it finally arrived in Season 6, The Heat, with Undead Siege.
In this new mode, players must spend the day scavenging for supplies and then defend Richtofen’s equipment from hordes of the undead each night.
Here’s how to play the new mode, and some tips on how to survive.
How to play Undead Siege in CoD: Mobile Zombies
Undead Siege is simple to find in CoD: Mobile, you’ll be able to launch it directly from the main menu.
Undead Siege is far from the typical round-bases Zombies modes that CoD fans have come to expect. In this new mode, you must survive either three or five nights of the undead, depending on the difficulty you select.

Players have the daytime to gather supplies and build defenses for the night ahead. This usually lasts around two minutes of in-game time, and then you must return to the Richtofen’s Control Center to survive the night.
As expected from CoD Zombies, each night gets more difficult. You can choose the more casual mode where you must survive three nights, or you could opt for the harder but more rewarding version with five nights.
How to survive Undead Siege in CoD: Mobile: Tips & tricks
Play as a squad
As all of the Undead Siege action takes place in one location during the night, you want there to be several players defending all angles. You won’t be able to split off and take on packs of Zombies by yourself, so it’s always better to play in a team.

This leads on to our next point, where a team can gather resources more effectively than a solo player.
Maximize looting time
The key to winning Undead Siege in CoD: Mobile Zombies is maximizing your time while looting during the day. Fly around in the helicopters to get Supply Drops, complete side missions in hard mode, and gather up as many resources as you can. You should also split up too, so you’re not all looting the one area.
This will allow you to quickly build and upgrade turrets, which are vital to surviving Undead Siege.
Keep an eye on the Control Center
Some enemies such as the Warden or Machine Gunner will only target the base and not the players. If you’re too caught up taking out the Zombies coming directly at you, you could be leaving the Control Center open to attack.

This also means repairing the base when it’s damaged, so there should always be at least one player making sure the base survives.
CoD: Mobile Zombies Undead Siege Themed event & rewards
Undead Siege will host its own in-game event later in Season 5. The Undead Siege Themed event will take place later in Season 6, allowing players to earn a variety of cosmetic items.
By playing multiplayer, battle royale, or Undead Siege, you can get items such as the FR .556 — Undead Watcher and a Zombified Edward Richtofen Operator Skin.
We’ll give more information on this Themed event is released later in Season 6, The Heat.

Warzone players call for boycott over Blizzard lawsuit and hacking problems
Due to the Blizzard lawsuit and endless hacking, Warzone, and other Call of Duty players, are calling for a boycott of Store purchases.
Warzone players are encouraging all Call of Duty gamers to boycott the purchase of skins and bundles from the store in response to the recent Activision Blizzard lawsuit and constant Warzone hacking.
It’s been an unsettling time for Call of Duty and its respective titles – Warzone, Black Ops Cold War, CoD: Mobile, and Modern Warfare. The ongoing Activision Blizzard lawsuit has impacted the franchise, and fans are calling for fellow players to stop buying goods from the CoD store in protest.
This includes everything from skins to Operator Bundles to even the Seasonal Battle Pass. Warzone players are citing the lawsuit, “empty updates,” and hackers as the driving force behind this movement.
Added to this is the purported series of empty updates “full of microtransactions in order to milk the players,” and the ever-increasing threat of hackers, and players have seemingly had enough.
Reddit user Jaszs has lead the charge by saying: “I’m writing this as someone who has played every. single. COD since COD2, and WZ since day 1 until yesterday, and also a former Blizzard fan. Yes, I know it may sound bad, but based on what’s going on (sexual harassment lawsuit, suppressing and abusive treatment of their employees…) I really think those guys don’t deserve anything from us, their customers.
“You can even keep playing the game if you want (there are some cool alternatives though; if you need some just ask in the comments!), just don’t spend any money in their store. In any case, you should also remember that they are the same guys that are releasing empty updates full of microtransactions in order to milk the players, releasing over and over the same game and not giving a single f*ck about the increasing number of hackers.”
The very passionate statement received over 300 comments and counting, and it’s universally in favor of boycotting Activision’s Store ahead of the Warzone Season 5 launch.
Given that there are many responses, here are a selection of replies:
- “I’ve got 900 COD points and level 90 on the battle pass. Not spending a penny more on this game. They don’t respect their employees, they don’t respect the players (anti-cheat lmao) they aren’t getting anymore of my money.”
- “Once all this sh*t came to light, my entire friend group collectively uninstalled the game and swore off of it for good. We were already mad at the game for being poorly managed with hackers and constant glitches/crashes. I suppose this was the lead straw that broke the metaphorical camel’s back.”
- “Based on the way they’ve handled cheating, the CW integration, and the general state of the game in the last year, I’m shocked than any of you have been buying cosmetic items from them. Do you realize what kind of message you’re sending by making the worst CoD their highest-earning one?”
At the time of writing, the post has nearly 1.8K upvotes and rising. Given the player count of Warzone far exceeds this, it’s hard to imagine this boycott would do too much damage.
Conversely, Producer at Sledgehammer Games Alayna Cole has Tweeted an important message concerning the circumstances.
Boycotting the Activision store will have an obvious knock-on effect in terms of sales revenue, and would ultimately disrupt the salaries and jobs of many employees who are not involved in this lawsuit.
It’s a hard position for all involved and for players who engage in Call of Duty games. The lawsuit is still long ongoing, and we’ll continue to update you at Charlie INTEL with any breaking developments.

Best MX9 loadout for CoD: Mobile Season 6
Here are the attachments and Perks you should run to create the best loadout for CoD: Mobile Season 6’s brand-new SMG, the MX9.
The MX9 is Call of Duty: Mobile’s latest weapon, and it’s already tipped to join the meta. Here are the best attachments and Perks you can run with it in Season 6.
There’s also the brand-new MX9 SMG which has been ported over from Black Ops 4. This is already shaping up to be a powerful addition to CoD: Mobile’s arsenal, so we have the best attachments and Perks you can run with it.
Best CoD: Mobile MX9 loadout attachments
- Barrel: MIP Extended Barrel
- Stock: Agile Stock
- Perk: Sleight of Hand
- Ammunition: Large Caliber Ammo
- Rear Grip: Firm Grip Tape
We’ve built this CoD: Mobile MX9 for high mobility, allowing you to dart around the new Slums map with deadly speed.
To start, we’ve gone for the MIP Extended Barrel. This gives a 20% boost to the MX9’s damage range, making the SMG much for versatile in those longer-range firefights.

Next, the Agile Stock gives a huge improvement to the weapon’s mobility. Your sprint to fire time will be reduced by 20%, allowing you to snap onto enemies even after full sprinting. Also, your ADS movement speed will also see a significant buff, allowing you to be mobile while aiming and shooting.
Then, we’ve gone with the Sleight of Hand weapon perk, which improves your reload time. While darting around the map and flanking the enemy, you don’t want an empty magazine, so Sleight of Hand will ensure you’re always ready for the fight.
Then, the Large Caliber Ammo will improve your body damage multiplier, making your MX9 all the more powerful. And finally, the Firm Grip Tape will further improve your ADS speed while also reducing flinch, allowing you to stay accurate when trading shots.
Best perks to use with CoD: Mobile MX9

- Green Perk: Quick Fix
- Blue Perk: Tactical Mask
We’ve chosen Perks that take advantage of the MX9’s speed and the playstyle you’ll adopt while using it.

The Lightweight Perk will significantly increase your sprint speed, allowing you to quickly get around the map to take the enemies by surprise. Then, we’ve gone for Quick Fix, which makes your health immediately regenerate after a kill.
And lastly, the Tactical Mask Perk will protect you from all enemy Tactical Equipment, meaning you’ll barely notice stuns and flashes tossed your way.
How to unlock the MX9 in CoD: Mobile Season 6
Luckily, it’s simple to get your hands on CoD: Mobile Season 4’s MX9, as it’s included in Season 4’s free Battle Pass. While playing the game, rack up Scorestreaks and play the objective, and you’ll unlock the SMG once you hit Tier 21.
